Your Adoption

Between Aisles, Protection, Belly Of Responsibility and Waves Of Control are all about the same few people in the Orange County days. When I lived in Orange County and worked at Trader Joes. I think you know who you are.

With you there was always a sense of adoption,

Shifted from foster care you ate the soup and inhaled

The drug that you were always alone, here it moans inside

Me again, I keep accepting your rejection as an invitation,

Painful realization you never wanted my name around those

Fancy parties in Orange County affairs, you never wanted me there

With you, afraid of my God talk, but when the chatter subsided you

Opened up again, your own adoption bloodline came out and you

Accepted who I was, and east coast ways they hit my west coast dreams

And so it seemed we became a new team, your broken ways limped

And winked at me, to see you helpless and close to homeless, I accepted

The flight we took to fly together, I had always wanted perfect weather

Anyway, it drifted as months passed you still went your own way abusing

Yourself with those guys that didn’t like you anyway, but when the sun went

Away there I was to stay, dilated you became, my facial expression lost its

Training for sad faces, then came the uproar inside the adoption reached out

To you, waves of control came to enthrall me once again, you gave up your baby,

You gave up life inside, you easily said good-bye, now my weapon went out,

Your protection became suspicion, safety in me is what you wanted, I would

Have treated you better now knowing your fall, pick me up again, be with me

Again, then I started inspecting my own saving ways, for you to stay would have

Been the worst between us, for the west coast was for dreaming the rest of the

World for living, and you settled it plainly you didn’t want your dreams to get in the

Way, it all became a bust, you and us, it became a lie and casualties lied down in

Front of me, I am not what you need love will make you succeed in these waves

Of control I am sending your way, so come with me again, learn how to love
